Spring brings the culminating activities for our year-long SOAR program. The WINGS program, of which SOAR is one component, is designed to provide opportunities to practice the nine character traits we work on during the year, as well as problem solving and decision making skills.
On May 28, the 6th graders will participate in

WINGS, Jr. at Holiday Hill Camp in Mansfield. This will be the first of three years on a low ropes course.
On June 2, Ashford will experience an annual “homecoming” when about 100 high school students return to run the SWINGS program for the 3rd, 4th and 5th graders. Two days later, our 8th grade students try out their leadership skills while running SWINGS for 1st and 2nd graders.
